When I try to flash the Megaflashrom with a new game , I get the error ´ Megaflashrom not found ´
There is a game on it , that I flashed before . The game in the cartridge starts when booting the computer.
I use OPF.COM to flash the new game . I can´t erase the cartridge either, same error .

What type of Megaflashrom do you have SCC/SCC+ 1024/512k ?
Can you post a picture of your Flashrom

It must be the old normal one, as he uses opf.com. I only had this problem when I had to reinsert the cart a few times (bad connector).

Oh, I just read it's not an old MFR, so he should simply use opfx.com.

I tried again with OPFX PFIGHTIN.ROM on the Megaflashrom SCC + SD. It automatically detects the ASCII 16 rom.
It does put the game on the cartridge , but I can´t control the character and only one character is visible in the game .

OPF is for old MegaFlashROM 512K SCC / ASCII / SRAM
OPFX is for MegaFlashROM SCC+
OPFXSD is for MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD

You need to use /U when flashing the game. It seems it does not handle subslots correctly.

Thanks . I tried OPFXSD PFIGHTIN.ROM/U now , but it freezes during loading the ROM or it gives a Flash write error .
Is there a romloader that works with this ROM to load it on a MSX2 with memory expansion ?

what is your MSX type and memory layout. Is the memory internally expanded?

Try cleaning the contacts in the cartridge and in the computer slot.

A different ROM works fine , for example The Goonies R Good enough.
